This week we have seen explosive allegations levelled at Don Burke. Numerous women have come forward and claimed that he touched them inappropriately, tried to remove their clothing, indecently assaulted them and made them watch videos including bestiality.

The problem is, that many of these allegations relate to conduct occurring in the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s, which means that prosecuting these claims now for some women may be problematic and potentially out of time.
